CHEM 2425 - Organic Chemistry II

4 Credits (3 hrs. lec., 4 hrs. lab.) This continuation of CHEM 2423  includes topics on alcohols, aldehydes, ketones, carboxylic acids and derivatives, condensation reactions, amines, biochemistry and polymer chemistry. The laboratory program continues investigations into synthetic techniques with product purification and analysis including chromatography and infrared spectroscopy. (4005045203) Prerequisite: College Level Readiness in Reading AND Writing; CHEM 2423  
Course Outcomes
1 - Correlate molecular structure with physical and chemical properties of aliphatic and aromatic organic molecules.
2 - Predict the mechanism and outcome of aliphatic and aromatic substitution and elimination reactions, given the conditions and starting materials.
3 - Predict the chirality of reaction products based on enantiomeric and diastereomeric relationships.
4 - Describe reaction mechanisms in terms of energetics, reaction kinetics, and thermodynamics.
5 - Use spectroscopic techniques to characterize organic molecules and subgroups.
6 - Perform chemical experiments, analysis procedures, and waste disposal in a safe and responsible manner.
7 - Utilize scientific tools such as glassware and analytical instruments to collect and analyze data.
8 - Identify and utilize appropriate separation techniques such as distillation, extraction, and chromatography to purify organic compounds.
9 - Record experimental work completely and accurately in laboratory notebooks, and communicate experimental results clearly in written reports.
